COURSE DESCRIPTION

More than just a technical class on Photoshop and Lightroom, this course will emphasize the digital print as a unique art form in which the choice of inkjet paper to print on makes the difference between an ordinary photo and an extraordinary piece of artwork.

Instructor Eric Joseph will cover all of the technical jargon and vocabulary of inkjet papers and introduce you to the full range of inkjet media available on the market from standard Resin Coated Photograde papers to handmade Japanese washi papers. This course emphasizes the creative benefits of understanding and controlling your digital print results through a hands-on printmaking session. The information is taught in an easily digestible and accessible format.

“The goal for every photographer should be to have a personal relationship with your materials so that when you push the button on your digital camera you have a pre-visualized notion of what the final image will ultimately look like up to and including what paper you will be printing on.” – Eric Joseph
